    Would I get lynched if I said ‘Yes, the P51 Mustang’?

    I still prefer the lines of the Spitfire – well caught here Ian.

    Would I get double lynched if I said "yes, the De Havilland Mosquito?"

    Classic Spit pose, no wonder it’s admired worldwide.

    There’s a Mosquito in the museum at Duxford, as you no doubt know. TA 719 which I understand appeared in the films 633 Squadron and Mosquito Squadron. Need to watch them again!

    Took a couple of photos of TA 719 but they don’t do it any justice, sadly. I was surprised it was in the bumble-bee target towing paint scheme, until I read later that it was still in service as a target tug well into the 1950s, and appearing on film in the 60’s.

    Just seemed a bit of a come down for a Mossie tho.

    Lovely looking machine. I do prefer these to the Mustang.
    Always liked to Tiger Moth a lot too though.
